that many had feared. north carolina governor bev purdue said her state dodged a bullet. virginia and maryland feeling the effects of earl. new york's eastern long island and massachusetts and cape cod in its sights. earl remains a powerful category 2 hurricane with sustained winds of 105 miles an hour. >> turning to politics now. arizona governor jan brewer calls it the longest 16 seconds of her life. if you haven't seen it, when you do you will understand what she is talking about. a televised debate that happened earlier in the woke. the governor delivered her opening statement. she was at an uncomfortable loss for words. here is a look. >> i have done so much and i just cannot believe that we have changed everything since i have become your governor in the last 600 days. arizona has been brought back from its abyss. we have cut the budget. we have balanced the budget. and we are moving forward. we have done everything that we could possibly do. we have -- did what was right for arizona. >> there was a lot more to the story than just the awkward silence there. christina boomer
mean, the state of virginia, you know very well a few weeks ago in that primary vote, you were up, what, 35 percent in a republican turnout over last time? >> huge. bill: that's substantial. >> you're going to have -- there's no doubt in my mind you're going to have a very big republican turnout and much of it if not most of it will be a protest vote. protest votes are very powerful motivation, not to be underestimated and apathy in midterms with the party in power is also a very distinct problem that occurs tile and again, particularly when times are bad, and times remain bad in the eyes of most americans. americans weren't loving the way the economy was growing when it was growing in the middle years of the bush administration, they certainly aren't happy with it now and they're not going to be happy any time soon. these measures taken now by the president i don't think are going to have any noticeable effect. bill: we'll debate if this in 30 minutes with doug schoen and brad blakeman. good to see you. >> i hope so. juliet: such a cool guy. >>> tropical storm hermine barreling into th
discontinued south of here. hurricane warnings still to the north carolina-virginia border. we've got tropical storm watches and warnings. and then for new england, we have hurricane warnings, because there is a very good possibility that earl could strike nantucket, jutting out there into the atlantic. again, the storm surge is about 2 to 3 feet, maybe 4 in some sections. five really in unusual areas. and again, this system is very tightly packed. it is raining but there's dry air to the north and so it's having a little trouble getting the northern fringes of the storm up into the new york area right now. rainfall amounts generally about 3 to four inches, some areas may pick up 5 to 6 inches and as you can see offshore of new england the rainfall amounts go over the rain bucket more than ten inches of rain. so a very potent storm still. still a dangerous storm, but as you said it could have been a lot worse. back to you. >> thank you, al. we'll check back in a couple of minutes. let's go down the coast about 50 miles. jim cantore is in cape hatteras. jim, how's it looking there? >> reporter:
of virginia, the commonwealth, i should say, one day away from its first execution of a woman in nearly a century. teresa lewis, admitted to plotting the 2002 murders of her husband and her stepson to collect insurance money. supporters of lewis argue she doesn't deserve to die because she is border line mentally disabled. >>> we've got live pictures coming back from the u.n. been on a beautiful day here in new york. we are about 90 minutes now from president obama, from when he leaves washington, to speak to world leaders on the east side of manhattan. it comes as the president faces new challenges from the left and the right. and it has critics suggesting that the white house has now gone into bunker mode ahead of the midterm elections. monica cowellly a talk show radio host and fox news contributor. the suggestion is now with the polls so consistently bad for the white house, also bad for the democrats, even his own advisers, starting to snipe, according to reports about how things are being handled, that he -- that president obama is in bunker mode, taking advice from fewer and fewe
says is entirely correct. there are democrats running on these principles we saw in west virginia, ellen mollohan was defeated in the primary, alverio ran on tea party principle, smaller government and fiscal restraint. so we are starting to see that shift that's that is going to correct on the democratic side. jenna: does that mean the tea party is about backing republicans? >> no, and to go with matt's earlier point that we just haven't been able to find democrats at the national level, and i would also caution that there are democrats out there, running as false conservatives, because their first goal as a politician is to get reelected and that's what we have to be careful of i think at the state level an certainly in new york and in the new york metro, we have many democrats who align with our principles, but if they want to run, their party will not let them identify with the tea party. jenna: david, let me stay with you for a second, because there's a lot that's been said about the tea party and who makes it up. in fact, colleen from madison, alabama, wrote us and asked who
